(ala Biollante) but only being a rumor. But either way another Gamera movie?! thats great.
I think it appears to be a real plan from Banno that he is shopping around to potential investors, but with no word on whether production is actually happening. It probably won't happen anytime soon if it does at all, considering Banno is doing production work on Legendary Pictures' Godzilla.
Keef has it right. The Advanced Audiovisual Productions site list projects that they are developing. It's designed to describe a film to potential investors, but until investors sign on there's no guarantee any of these projects will ever go into production. Yoshimitsu Banno was pitching his GODZILLA 3D for years with no buyers; but when Legendary decided to do their own GODZILLA 3D they absorbed his project into their own (which means his version won't get made but he'll get an Executive Producer credit and a nice paycheck from the Legendary film). Gamera is not as commercial as Godzilla so he'll be an even harder sell to investors, but if Banno can get the 3D film off the ground it might be fun. But until there's official word that investors have signed and production has started I wouldn't put much stock in any release dates that are (or will be) announced.
